The 3DS has shattered all expectations in Germany, Nintendo Germany has announced. The system launched in March 25th 2011, and has managed to sell 750,000 units in the country, which is way more than any other handheld console.
Bernd Fakesch, who is the general manager of Nintendo Germany was quite pleased with sales figures and said, “The 3DS exceeded all of our expectations in Germany.”
In comparison the current gen consoles sold:
PS3 – 309,000 units
360 – 262,000 units
Wii – 800,000 units
The PS Vita’s first month’s sales for Germany aren’t known, but the system completely underperformed in France and sold just 66k units in its first month.
